Elisabetta Maulo & Piergiorgio Pirro - Live @ Pianist's Corner
Like Someone In Love (Burke / Van Heusen) Performed at the Pianist's Corner (Brussels) by Elisabetta Mualo, vocals Piergiorgio Pirro, piano Elisabetta Maulo and Piergiorgio Pirro perform emotional, deep music with a high degree of spontaneity. Their sound could be described as a sort of contemporary chamber jazz influenced by Early Jazz music. It is sometimes minimalist, sometimes orchestral, and focuses on aspects such as the earthy and bluesy sound of the first era of Jazz, its unique rhythmic approach, and the use of polyphony in the arrangements. They began to collaborate in 2011 in the form of a voice and piano duo, working on the repertoire of the jazz of the 20s and 30s, and soon starting to compose their own original pieces. This transition is documented in the album "Early", published by the label Improvvisatore Involontario in 2015. This work features the participation of two prominent Italian jazzmen of the same generation: Tony Cattano at the trombone and Beppe Scardino at the baritone saxophone and bass clarinet. With time and sharing a number of diverse musical experiences, among which a 3-months residence in the jazz venue JZ Club in Hangzhou (China), the repertoire of the duo grew considerably. Aside from their original compositions, the duo plays now the music of composers like George W. Thomas, Spencer Williams, W. C. Handy, Fats Waller, Billy Strayhorn, and makes incursions in territories like the American and Brazilian songbooks, with the occasional tribute to the great Italian songwriters of the past. They are now working on a second album, which they will record in spring 2020.

Roby is introduced to the secrets of gypsy music by his father Tony and uncle Sándor Lakatos at the age of five. He learns from the ear all this repertoire by heart, immersed in the tradition of play and ornamentation. He formed himself in the orchestras where his father and his uncle play. He perfected his classical training by studying the repertoire at the Béla Bartók Conservatory in Budapest where he received the first prize in 1984. This double training between popular and scholarly music allowes him to play with ease and virtuosity all kinds of music in a unique, inspired style. . Roby Lakatos left his native country in 1985 for Belgium. From 1986 to 1996, he played in Brussels in the club "Ateliers de la Grande Île", with his ensemble, he then started performing concerts and introduced two unusual instruments, the guitar and the piano, in his gypsy group to which he gives a new stylistic orientation. In March 2004, Roby Lakatos had great success playing alongside Maxim Vengerov and the London Symphony Orchestra during the orchestra festival Les Genies du Violin. He is also noticed by Yehudi Menuhin. He plays around the world in festivals and large concert halls and performs on television, radio, etc. As an arranger and as a performer ,he plays both traditional Hungarian music, classical music and jazz.

Progressively, after some concerts and rehearsals, a complicity was born between the two musicians resulting in this first duo project. Both come from different artistic backgrounds but reunited by jazz, the genre in which they try this complex exercise: the interpretation of standards. On January 11, Matthias and Gregoire will tell you the story of their friendship through the "classics" of jazz.

Three Pearls On A String - Live @ Pianist's Corner
https://www.facebook.com/pianistscorner.be/ https://www.instagram.com/pianists.corner/ https://www.pianists-corner.com/ Alberto Parmegiani - Guitar Avishai Darash - Piano and keys Daniele Capucci - Bass “Ten Sephirot” composed by Avishai Darash During the last three years Parmegiani, Darash and Cappucci have crossed paths many times, firstly because they all signed for the same italian super high class label A.MA Records run by well known italian producer Antonio Martino who made his bones working and producing with people like Nicola Conte and Gerardo Frisina just to name a few. They started to perform in the same combo in 2018 while in the same year working together on different albums for the label. As they all remember even on the first gig they immediately felt that communion of intent that makes a concert a special one.
Tmesis Ensemble - Live@ Pianist's Corner
https://www.facebook.com/pianistscorner.be/ https://www.instagram.com/pianists.corner/ https://www.pianists-corner.com/ R. Schumann - 6 Etudes in Canonic Form Op. 56 no.2, arr. Kirchner International chamber music ensemble Tmesis, laureate of the Supernova Competition, was founded in 2016 at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. Since their recent creation, Tmesis was invited by festivals such as the Klarafestival, the Portuguese HARMOS Festival, the Schiermonnikoogfestival in the Netherlands, Klara in deSingel and the festival Midis-Minimes. They have been broadcasted on the Euroclassical Online Festival, Musiq’3, Radio Klara and the British BBC Radio 3. Tmesis is ensemble in residence in Beeldenstorm (Anderlecht). In 2018., Tmesis Ensemble released their first CD “Echoes”, in the production of Et'cetera label. Along with music written by Frederik Neyrinck, they gave a fresh insight on masterpieces by Parisian and Viennese composers, whose works has been arranged by Tim Mulleman. These very fine lines between traditional classical music and the echoes of a modern world are reflected in the present album. The quintet formation, actually a 'pocket-sized orchestra' (winds, strings, piano), is the solid base that guides us throughout a story full of variation. Different repertoire for quintet, interrupted in the style of the rhetorical 'tmesis' (ancient-Greek for ‘cut, break’) by works in contrasting formations and styles (duo, trio, …) – the possibilities are endless!
